"We have the power to do anything we like, absolute power over every particle in the universe, everything that has ever existed or ever will exist as from this moment. Are you listening to me, Romana?"
"Yes, of course, I'm listening."
"'Cause if you're not listening I can make you listen, because I can do anything. As from this moment there's no such thing as free will in the entire universe. There's only MY will because I possess the Key to Time."
"Doctor, are you all right?"
"Well, of course I’m all right, but suppose I wasn’t all right."
– The Fourth Doctor and the First Romana, Doctor Who: "The Armageddon Factor"
That's right, my partner in time Jesse Jackson are back with a new episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! In this episode, Jesse and I review "The Armageddon Factor", the sixth and final serial from Season 16, a.k.a. "The Key to Time" season, starring Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor, Mary Tamm as the First Romana, and John Leeson as the voice of K-9!
This time, Jesse and I discuss things like the confusion of Lalla Ward as Princess Astra before she becomes the Second Romana, Romana burning a regeneration just for the sake of fashion, Valentine Dyall as Deep Thought on the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy TV series, the Chuck Berry classic "School Days", the Fourth Doctor's power trip gag on Romana, how the Doctor and Drax probably knew one another at the Academy on Gallifrey, wondering why the White Guardian never returned in Season 16, the Doctor caring more about innocents in his earlier incarnations, crediting "The Doctor" instead of "Doctor Who", Drax's confidence in lining up his next gig, the debut of the Randomizer, my Reverse the Reverse the Polarity segment, the upcoming return of John Simm as the Sixth Master, and more!
